Loads of action!!!!!
24 May 2006 | by ((Near) D/FW Airport, Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

Don't be fooled by the title of this film.

"Glitch!" is such a bizarre, yet wonderful piece of cinema. For instance, look at a poster or a video cover of this film. It'll freak you out!!!!! You'll think it's like a totally 80s type of music video compilations or something. Nope, it's really nothing more than a couple of wackos that try to rob a house! It's stuff that makes me laugh until I die; it's that ridiculous! (and good)

Also, you got to feel sorry for that bad guy; remember those "Love Boat" opening credits where the bartender was acting cool at the camera? Sadly, that was him! I feel sorry for you, sir!!!!!

But still, get this movie if you are frowning and need a wonderful smile on your face!
